Launched back in 1999, the Mascott plugged the gap between the Master range of 3.5-tonners and the six-tonne GVW Midlum. However, since it was introduced, it failed to bring in the volumes Renault had hoped for and, at its peak in 2007, it rarely sold more than 200 units in the UK annually.
Overall, only 150,000 units have been sold throughout Europe.
In an official statement, Renault says: "The Renault LCV range continues to evolve, with new product developments coming this year."
Renault says that it had just eight units remaining (as of December 2009) and was confident of shifting the last few "in the coming weeks".
The model was powered by a 3.0-litre diesel engine with a cab lifted straight from the Master. It was billed as a rival to the likes of the Nissan Cabstar, Isuzu N Series and the Mercedes-Benz Vario.
